Rep. Walsh and Rep. Kucinich explain why they voted no on debt deal

The House of Representatives passed a bill to raise the nation's debt-ceiling while imposing sweeping spending cuts yesterday on a 269-161 vote, overcoming opposition from liberal Democrats and tea party conservatives for ideologically different reasons.

Representative Joe Walsh (R-Ill.) and Representative Dennis Kucinich (D-Ohio) are two lawmakers who voted against the bill.

They join Carol Costello on American Morning today to discuss their decision and to weigh in on the political compromise.
